IPD Team Preference
1. Data4Peace: uses subnational data on violence, poverty, and other indicators to understand how transparency, accountability, and social services can be improved in post-conflict regions. We use various tools-- including GIS, statistical analysis, qualitative methods and experimental design--to explore these themes.

2. Governance and Development: uses statistical tools and GIS mapping software to study governments' capacity, autonomy, delivery of services, and probity in carrying out these functions. The team is currently undertaking projects pertaining to government audits (i.e. corruption), employment expenditures (i.e. patronage), intergovernmental fiscal transfers, and natural resources.

3. Communications: manages IPD social media accounts, website, and blog.

4. Global Health, Nutrition, and Evaluations: this team will be learning about the methodology and real-world workings of conducting evaluations, with a focus on global health and nutrition. We are currently working on a synthesis review on global nutrition research for the Eleanor Crook Foundation.

5. Global Indices Team: In recent years the field of international development has been characterized by a reliance on an ever-increasing number of ratings and rankings. These indicators are meant to measure performance across sectors and facilitate comparative analysis. The rankings are often bundled into development indices as a way of aggregating information. The Networked Power and Pathologies project examines the ecosystem of global development indices. Their aim is to map shared dependencies among indices and evaluate how power is created and exercised in the act of scoring.

6. Chinese Development Finance: this team was launched in the summer of 2015 to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank’s developments, membership status, and project implementation. This AIIB weekly digest produced by this team is now followed extensively by thought leaders in major U.S. and international organizations.

7. Agricultural Development: this team will examine the adoption and impacts of CGIAR investments by supporting the CGIAR Independence Science and Partnership Council’s analysis of the organization’s successes, challenges, and short- and long-term reach. In addition, the team will provide ongoing support to CGIAR’s Strengthening Impact Assessment (SIAC), which has generated studies on the adoption and impact of technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This IPD team will analyze data sets coming out of the SIAC program – searching for errors or replicating the work of researchers in the program.
